Get Talking - Autobiography

Have you ever thought about writing your autobiography?
Our question for this week asks ...

If you were writing a book about your life, what would the title be?

We pulled out these cards at the dinner table the other night and this was one of the questions that we pulled out. My title would be ...

Is It Time?

My life is always about waiting and wondering when it will be time for ...

  • marriage
  • children
  • being noticed
  • finding friends
  • changing jobs/careers
  • getting to places on time
  • people to finish/start something
  • people to come/go
  • moving on
  • Jesus to return
There always seems to be a wait for everything.

What would be the title of your book?

Get Talking - Style

We are talking style this week.
And the question is ...

Who is your style icon?

Can't say that I have one.

When it comes to clothes, I buy things that are comfortable and modest. I don't go for the latest fashion and if I don't find something one year, I will look again the next and make do with what I have (I'm pretty good at mending and getting better at altering clothes).

Furniture and home - well I'm pretty much maxed out, space wise, at the moment. I could really do with another bookshelf (or two), but there is just no more space in my room to put it. And I would love to replace my desk (I've always wanted a roll-top desk). I have all different styles, although I'm currently in a bit of a white furniture phase (except that dust shows up a lot and I hate dusting). If I am buying, I look around for something I like, regardless of the current trends (I do like Ikea ... hmm ... must plan a trip there, even if just for a look).

When you boil it down, I guess you could say I'm my own style icon!!

Get Talking - Deserted Island

What's the classic question that always pops up at some stage?
Yes, you guessed it, and here it is for this week.

What five things would you take with you if you were stranded on a desert island?

  • My Bible
  • A water bottle
  • A lightweight, large scarf (can be a hat, shade or blanket)
  • Comfortable shoes
  • A friend

Get Talking - Taste of Summer

So we have just started spring and already many people are already looking forward to summer. Not me, well except for the fact that it will make me an Auntie, summer holidays, Christmas and my birthday. I struggle with hot days and sad memories of people who are no longer with us.

Anyway ... this is meant to be a lighthearted post.

What's your favourite ice-cream flavour?

I love peppermint choc-chip.

It's so refreshing.

2016 Reading Challenges - Update 5

Hi Everyone! How are you going with your challenges?

I'm pleased to announce that I have already completed one of mine!
Actually I finished it a couple of weeks ago.

So here we are!
The last book was for:
Contains one of your favourite things in the title - Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott

I had thought about something with butterflies or lighthouses, but I had read the ones I had within the last year and didn't want to read them again, so I went with this oldie, but goodie.
I've probably read it 5 times, but it's such a good story.

No more updates with the other challenges for now. It will probably be December before I finish the Alphabet Challenge and I'm still working on the last of the Anne of Green Gables Challenge. Which reminds me, I need to start the next book that I'm reading for that. Which book will it be ...?
